RCD 2081 - Humcrush: Rest At Worlds End (CD)
The third album from these two excellent musicians was recorded live at various European venues, although the high level of musicianship, focus on detail and high recording quality could easily lead you to think it would be a meticulously assembled studio recording. With ”Rest At Worlds End” the duo continue their adventurous explorations of abstract grooves and atmospheric moods. But don´t expect any live versions of previous studio tracks, these are all brand new tracks, 11 on the CD and 18 on the limited double LP edition.
Ståle Storløkken is a founder member of Supersilent, Elephant9 and Terje Rypdal´s Skywards and is probably the most interesting and versatile electric keyboard player operating on the Norwegian scene at the moment.
Drummer and composer Thomas Strønen is a regular member of Food, Maria Kannegaard Trio and Parish, his quartet with the superb Swedish pianist Bobo Stenson.
